Obscure Whites

Sampler

Obscure Whites Sampler - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Last month, we provided the opportunity to delve into the lesser-known red wines of France and Italy—those made from scarcely cultivated grape varieties, unheralded appellations, and small, off-the-radar terroirs. Carrying on the spirit of discovery, today we explore obscure white wines—bottles that, fifteen or twenty years ago, you would be hard-pressed to find on a restaurant wine list or store shelf.
    Fortunately, nowadays the options are bountiful, and we are more than ever able to savor the unique wines being crafted even in the most unlikely corners of the globe. A glass of well-made Chardonnay may certainly do the trick, but if you’re like us, you’ll enjoy the gustative journey to southeastern Sicily to sample the local strain of Moscato grown in the Val di Noto, or perhaps you will discover that you prefer the Sauvignon Blanc from the little village of Quincy to that of nearby Sancerre. One thing is sure: you’re in for a sensorially-stimulating, mouth-watering, palate-enlivening experience. –Anthony Lynch

Every three or four months I would send my clients a cheaply made list of my inventory, but it began to dawn on me that business did not pick up afterwards. It occurred to me that my clientele might not know what Château Grillet is, either. One month in 1974 I had an especially esoteric collection of wines arriving, so I decided to put a short explanation about each wine into my price list, to try and let my clients know what to expect when they uncorked a bottle. The day after I mailed that brochure, people showed up at the shop, and that is how these little propaganda pieces for fine wine were born.—Kermit Lynch
